This is, indeed, a dialect expression, but what exactly is meant with it is VERY dependent on the region the company is located/the personnel is from. As indicated in the proposed answers it can already mean 3 different things based on region so far, and there will probably be more added. I'd say "keep going", "give it all you have" and "kicking ass" are totally different things!
I would definitely, especially since this will be a main tagline, get in touch with the client and get a clear description of what it means "for them", and translate it based on their explanation instead of guessing.

Explanation: This is dialect from the region "Twente" (Enschede and surrounds). It is an encouragement, most often for some one nearly giving up. Go for it, see above assist from L.J. Wessel van Leeuwen is very close. I would even go one step further and use "kick ass", which also includes some aggressiveness.
